DVD Release: Mork & Mindy: The Complete Series

December 16, 2014

Mork & Mindy DVD

Last week, Paramount released Mork & Mindy: The Complete Series on DVD, featuring all 95 episodes of the classic show about Mork (Robin Williams), an eccentric alien from the planet Ork, who comes to Earth to study humans and becomes friends with Mindy (Pam Dawber).

Running for four seasons from 1978 to 1982, this Happy Days spinoff series gave Robin Williams his breakout role, and the rest is history.  The comic genius brought delightful energy and sweetly childlike innocence to the title alien, perfectly delivering his trademark mix of hilarious antics with a charming and heartfelt centre.  

Because of this, Mork & Mindy still holds up beautifully, with many scenes taking on added resonance in the wake of his tragic death, like a movingly prescient talk about the perils of celebrity in the poignant and brilliantly meta third season episode Mork Meets Robin Williams.

Featuring one of the best actors and entertainers of all time, in one of his most beloved and iconic roles, Mork & Mindy: The Complete Series is a must watch for all Robin Williams fans.  It’s absolutely wonderful, and would make a great gift, especially with the endearing first season episode Mork’s First Christmas.

The fifteen-disc DVD set also includes three gag reels and the two original episodes of Happy Days where Mork was first introduced.

Mork & Mindy: The Complete Series is approximately 2385 minutes and rated PG.
